romney and paul ryan canceled events scheduled in wisconsin today and tomorrow. president obama's campaign event that was scheduled for tomorrow in green bay is also on hold in the badger state. and it's ten electoral votes are critical to mitt romney's hope to unseat president obama especially if president obama takes ohio. so we'll continue our tour of these swing states that are crucial to this election and turn to kristin crowl. she is joining us from madison, wisconsin. kristin welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank you so much for having me, governor. >> jennifer: you bet. when we last talked to you, you were in the throws of battling this scott brown recall stuff. how is early voting doing? and do we have any idea who has the edge of that in wisconsin? >> we have been very pleased with the way that early vote is shaping up. we have had lines every day in our democratic base areas across the state, we have had rallies and events and we feel like we have the edge in early vote it started a week ago and we have seen lines ever since. so we're very e
and democratic governors. but listen talk about fema. paul ryan, his budget cut -- "new york times" reports this morning. congressional republicans cut 43% out of the primary fema grants that pay for disaster preparedness. remember eric cantor. remember peter, eric cantor, the hurricane struck his district fema wanted to go in there. they wanted more money because of some of the disasters. they asked for more money to deal with the earthquake. even in cantor's district. he said no. we're not going to give fema anymore money unless you cut money from healthcare, you know. so they've been -- anti-disaster relief and again, mitt romney who wants to give it to the states, get rid of fema, put it in the hands of the state or maybe the private sector. can you imagine, can you imagine with this hurricane hitting the coast like new jersey or atlantic city, if you had to count on who? name it. some -- some security firm, blackwell. or something. halliburton. >> there are pictures of firefighters in water up to their chests wadi
and then heads to coral gables and jacksonville. paul ryan will be campaigning in wisconsin. some are calling the pair's reemergence on the campaign trial after supposedly taking time out out of respect for the hurricane victims. romney's official reason for the event yesterday was to collect donations for storm victims, but it sure looked a lot like a campaign, a big american flag on the wall campaign music, crowds and the press were invited. voters had to wait to drop off their donations until romney arrived to collect them himself. john mccain even went as far as to blast president obama on the benghazi attack. one other issue is romney's thoughts on fema. here he is yesterday. >> [ inaudible ]? >> romney: why -- >> why don't you answer any questions about fema. >> nothing to say. more bill coming up after the break. highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart.

of it too. you look at paul ryan's budget for instance. he wants to slash funding to fema, tried on multiple occasions. he also is advancing this really hair-brained idea that was pedalled around a lot by eric cantor last year. where they demand that any disaster-relief funding that the government dolls out after hurricane sandy and the tornado in missouri whatever that has to be offset with budget cuts elsewhere, so they are saying we are going to hold hostage any funding that going to disaster relief unless we can get the other side to cut education national parks whatever else. and these are not cuts that people want to make. so the relief funding is going to get delayed or completely held up. >> wow. >> so every time that there is a natural disaster where funds are needed immediately, congress has to have a big fight over what they are going to cut in order to fund disaster relief. >> yeah. insane. >> they just seems like the height of irresponsibility. >> also if you think about it too, though if you cut this federal funding in what position does someone

, it will help bring the state together, then the mayor feels it needs to go forward. >> eliot: maybe paul ryan will run the marathon. hate to bring politics into this. abc's news correspondent -- >> reporter: no comment. >> eliot: brandy hitt, so many thanks for your reporting tonight. >> reporter: thanks, eliot. >> eliot: for more on new york's struggles we've got joe bruno office emergency management. thanks for joining us on the phone. >> thank you eliot. pleasure to be here. >> eliot: one of the crises is getting power getting juice back into the electrical systems so you can get heat. you can get hot water. you can get elevators working. what do you know about con ed and what the pace may be not only in lower manhattan but also the lower boroughs and other parts of the city that have been devastated by this? >> i know that kevin burke had a press conference with the mayor and others. said that he had a good feeling about getting this -- the lower manhattan area up and running this weekend. can't tell if you it is s
, it's a bad way to go. >> eliot: in the romney-ryan budget paul ryan's budget in particular they're slashing fema. are we missing something here? >> no, we should take them at their word. they mean it when they say it. i would argue and many americans agree, the disaster relief is a core function of government. it's a basic hallmark of what governments do, help people when they're in most dire straits. they're saying they don't want any part of that. >> eliot: i could not agree with you more. 99.9% of the american public agrees with you, but it's part of their litany that, gee we don't trust government and we don't want it to get in the way until people wake up and see how important it is. that's why of course mitt romney has backtracked and flip flopped as he has on every other issue on the moment of crisis. but it is a core piece of paul ryan's budget and they want to slash the protection the get from the federal government. >> you have to help one way or another. if it means taking it out of fema, they'll do that. but the american people better pay close attention because in a
. as you mentioned the president had three events here today. mitt romney and paul ryan, i think just finished up an event down state in cincinnati, where there were huge crowd from what i'm told. tomorrow we're going to have a president here up here in the cleveland area, romney is back on sunday. paul ryan is here all weekend. and then on monday both campaigns are going to finish out the ohio phase of their efforts down in columbus, with live music and all the trimmings. yes, they're never going to come and visit us again when this is all over. >> jennifer: i don't know about ever, you guys are the bell of the ball. you have to be glowing in all of this attention. obviously another thing that is not getting much attention but you know, we have been focused on super storm sandy causing damage obviously on the eastern seaboard but i'm told it also caused damage in the ohio. what is the assessment of the damage there? >> the electricity is still out in pockets of northern ohio, the cleveland area. i was checking earlier and there are 40,000 to 50,000 homes. my power just went on last n
-557-7377. there is a war on women and mitt romney and paul ryan are leading it. john is from east liver pool ohio. good morning. >> caller: good morning, bill, how are you. i really enjoy your show. >> bill: thank you. thank you. what is your point? >> caller: i believe mitt romney covered his ass during the last debate to create 12 million jobs. i swear i heard him say this is going to take eight to ten years. what do you think? >> bill: i didn't hear him say that, but i tell you this much, he keeps saying that -- i have a plan 12 million jobs. you seen the plan? >> caller: no, there is no plan. >> bill: so many in the energy sector or manufacturing or bring jobs back from overseas. nothing. it's just like he said in this latest ad, that i have a plan for the auto industry and he opposed the one plan that president obama put forth which saved the auto industry so i -- you know, i think this election is all about who can -- can mitt romney continue to tell the big lies and get away with it? are the american people that dumb, really? and to pick up on laura bassett's phrase are amer
]. but in the meantime the interesting thing is how many people including paul ryan, and of course, romney and others have fallen for this crap. >> stephanie: yeah stephen we were saying earlier in the show it really bogles the mine go wait a minute, you are going to figure out how to try to make a profit off of people in the middle of an emergency and tragedy when it is time sensitive. really? >> yeah. yeah. and in my book the interesting thing is i make my -- the victims of my -- of my fictional hurricane, the rich -- the especially rich this hurricane that i have fantasized goes up the coast of florida on both sides, and typically go after the most expensive properties so they discover the rich are in this too, so even if you have money, you can't get it to people. >> stephanie: yeah. and how -- on top of -- you know take any subject -- but how egregious is it that mitt romney's response is of course several days later, he won't answer the question and then his response of course i would fund fema. >> well that's part of neurosis and people will listen to that and let him
heatwave, which july was the hottest month in recorded history in america just 8.7%. paul ryan's workouts were covered three times more than the loss of arctic sea ice. finally, between 2009 and 2011, coverage of climate change during t.v. news dropped by 90%. climate change. ridiculous. we're not going to make that mistake here on the young turks. to help us talk about this issue. we've brought in two of our own experts, mark thomson long time weatherman here in l.a. and someone who cares passionately about this issue and has for a long time has joined us as well. let me talk to you first about this storm and why we might think that this weather event could be part of the climate change that we're seeing on a macro level as i just laid out. >> of course, you're really good to point out the macro level because it's the constellation of things that you mentioned and more. it's not just this one super storm although this storm was remarkable because it brought together three distinct complexes of atmosphere disturbance into one big horror show as we've seen. when you look at sea surface tem
, it means one foot laterally in terms of what we have to deal with. you said this to me before. what paul ryan did with fema, the 43% cut is a disastrous public policy. will this now be left on the cutting room floor and will congress understand that fema is essential. >> the case has been made. this is a national disaster. it is crossing 17 different states and 17 different states are facing life-threatening situations and having a federal coordinator, fema is coordinating all of the federal response efforts not only in new york but all across the 17 states. a case is certainly being made. we're calling fema every other day. >> eliot: if key didn't learn it in katrina, we are learning it now. the romney-ryan budget cuts fema 43%. that's simply outrageous. bad, horrendous public policy. >> and those who advocate that say it can be handled by the private sector. >> eliot: they don't flow what they're talking about. congresswoman carolyn maloney my congresswoman, many thanks for joining me tonight. >> great to see you. >> eliot: other local officials from the storms will join us, and new me
. the reason i called is because i don't think enough attention is being paid to paul ryan. mitt romney's presidency is scary enough but should he die if paul ryan is president, it would be scarier than i've ever heard. >> stephanie: rachel maddow. rachel versus carly i'll take that match any time. it was good. she was talking about he's moderate mitt now. rachel was like right and then he picked paul ryan. it shows you exactly where he's going to be, right jacki, on any of these issues. we were talking about -- by the way, you and i were talking about some healthcare stuff. >> yes. >> stephanie: a, he wants to voucherize medicare. we all know that. paul ryan. but i was saying mitt romney was on the campaign trail this weekend repeating a lie that i've seen in right wing e-mails is that oh, no doctors a lot of doctors now are turning down patients because they aren't going to take anymore medicare patients because of the cuts to medicare. >> okay. there are no cuts to medicare. i'm not entirely sure how else to say
marathon until wednesday november 7th by then paul ryan will be unemployed and he can run the race. ben white said if i still lived in stat on the island and saw all of these joggers bussed in, i would go insane. they have the transportation to take the joggers and runners to statton island and yet there are still people trapped there and can't get out. >> bill: and by the way, have you seen the lines for buses in new york? >> yeah. >> bill: maybe if they have all of those extra buses they should use some of those extra buses on the streets of new york to move people around. >> yeah. >> bill: you know, michael bloomberg shows a lot of leadership in a lot of areas, i think on this one he lost it. though leadership on this one would have been to say there are more important things right now than a marathon and we're just going to delay it a week or maybe two weeks. no, bfd, right? >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." ♪ only time you can get to a polling place. make sure that voting is your highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show.
and jeb bush. paul ryan will be in wisconsin. romney allegedly took the day off yesterday from campaigning and engaged in what was branded as a storm relief benin stead of a rally but voters show that donors were asked to wait until the candidate turned up to give their donated goods. goods which the red cross neither needed nor wanted. >> photo op. >> it wreaks a lot of the paul ryan soup kitchen photo op and the red cross wants money not goods or even blood donations at this point. the campaign played romney's bio video, the one he played at the republican convention, when asked about fema, he refused to answer questions. we'll be right (vo) brought to you by metlife. stay tuned for the answer.
